Hay Creek Stream Diversion

Hay Creek Stream Diversion

Scope

Michels developed a diversion plan for Hay Creek to allow a pipeline crew to perform an anomaly dig to repair an imperfection of a high-pressure pipeline that crossed the creek. A 24-inch 250hp electric submersible pump and a 6-inch 27hp electric submersible pump were determined to be adequate to handle the creek's flow of 21,300 gallons per minute, to fit into the site's small footprint, and reduce the risks of the losing prime or encountering mechanical failure compared to other pump options.

  • Michels developed a diversion plan for Hay Creek to allow a pipeline crew to perform an anomaly dig to repair an imperfection of a high-pressure pipeline that crossed the creek.

Projects

Michels Dewatering group was tasked to design, install and operate a system to divert peak flows of up to 168,000 gallons per minute, or 242 million gallons per day, so that a pipeline could be open cut in dry conditions across the Conotton Creek.

Michels constructed an underground water retention cistern inside of an occupied apartment  building. Due to historic water levels in Milwaukee, WI, a parking garage had been underwater and inaccessible since March of 2019.

Michels designed a water diversion solution for the Little Calumet River for an anomaly dig. The river serves as a drainage canal for the area and can rise at least 4 inches in water elevation. As little as 1 inch of rain can substantially alter the flow of the river.

Michels dewatering and pipeline construction operations teamed up to isolate standing water and control groundwater in permeable soils to allow a pipeline joint to be repaired.

Michels performed casing removal on sections of natural gas pipe in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Kansas. The work sites in Minnesota and Wisconsin were wetlands, while the sites in Kansas were located in agricultural fields.
